    I have been using Google voice for a few months now and have been loving it until last night. I mainly use it for txt messages and last night I received one immediate followed by a txt message from the same person/content as an actual txt message. I have continued to receive duplicate messages from this person (only one that has txt'd me) and I need it to stop! I don't have an unlimited txt plan (and don't want one) not to mention the redundancy of the messages coming to Google voice and my txt folders.

    Can anyone PLEASE help me? I don't know if this is a result of updating to 2.2 two days ago or not....

    It's just a setting. Log into your Google Voice account online, go to Settings > Voice Settings, locate your Mobile number and select edit. Uncheck "receive text messages..."

    edit: there's likely a way to do this from the phone, I just have never done it from the phone and knew the steps to do it through a web browser.

    Thanjs! Any idea why it decided to start all on it's own?

    Nope, no idea. I found the setting for it on the phone, though, so it could have been triggered by the upgrade (i.e. it's controlled by a setting on the phone so changes to the system could modify that setting).

    Just a thought but do you get a number of free sms with your monthly plan and perhaps your new billing cycle started on the same day?
